Human vs. Environment
It is my belief that we as humans do have a lot of control over our environment. Every decision that we make affects it some way. The cars that we choose to drive is just one of the many ways that humans affect our environment on a daily basis. Even the simplest choices that we can make in life, like recycling, can make a huge impact in the future of our environment. Until you really stop and think about just how big our environment actually is, then you probably would not ever realize just how important it is to us as humans and just how much we do affect it.

This air is also thought to be a contributing factor to cancer and lung diseases. This really hit home with me considering I have very special friends and family members who have died or are dying from cancer. After finding this out, I really did some hard core researching other possible contributions that pollution from oil and gasoline products harming our environment. I found that air pollution also causes acidic rain which is very harsh on plants and crops (Staff Writers 2015). Hybrid cars also cut down on the amount of oil and gasoline products that are burned which in return produces less amounts carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide (Nelson 2010). A Hybrid car is a great example of how even the smallest change can make a big effect in our environment.
Another upgrade that Hybrid cars have made is using nickel batteries instead of lead-acid batteries (Nelson 2010). I think that scientist are coming up with very smart and environmental-safe upgrades. I only wish they could come up with more. Another benefit of using less gasoline would be that we will slow down the drilling, because using less will change the need for supply and demand. Due to Hybrids running on partial gas and partial electric the gas conservation is so high that the once you break down the cost per gallon it averages out to be as low 75 cents a gallon, which has not been seen in over 30 plus years (phys****). According to one study it is said that the Hybrid car conserves enough fuel that it would save the United States nearly two million barrels of oil on a daily basis (phys****). If this study is true then we could become a lot more self-sustaining as a country and not have to rely on another country for our own needs to survive. Which would ultimately help our county as a whole. The Hybrid car is the quietest vehicle on the road. Believe it or not, when the Hybrid car is stopped the engine shuts off and it runs on battery power. Therefore, it is completely silent and you will never even know that it is running; unlike big diesel trucks that are constantly making a lot of noise, even if you are at a complete stop.
In this day and time the world has become more about safety of the...
